Thalassotherapy (from the Greek word thalassa, meaning “sea”) is the medical use of seaweed, seawater and shore climate as a form of therapy, our thalassa formulations focus on the use of Bladderwrack. We harvest local Bladderwrack from the surrounding chalk reef to make our products because it contains a high levels of fucoidan, a potent natural anti-inflammatory, which also helps reduce redness on the skin’s surface. Fucoidan fights aging by helping to maintain collagen levels and promote elasticity in the skin. The nutrients in seaweed help increase pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream, in turn reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin. Seaweed is also an excellent natural source of omega-3 fatty acids that promote healthy skin.
Conducted by qualified Haeckels Therapists in the coastal calm of our purpose-built treatment space, each of our thalassa formulations developed by our in-house laboratory are meticulously tailored to decongest, stimulate and intensely nourish the skin, taking into consideration individual skin types and concerns.
